Federal Chief Information Officer Tony Scott has revealed the government’s plan to manage legacy and update-to-date information technology systems in what he calls a bimodal ecosystem, FedScoop reported Tuesday.
Billy Mitchell writes the bimodal IT approach is part of the Obama administration’s proposed $3.1 billion IT Modernization Fund introduced by Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.).
Scott told the audience of VMware’s Public Sector Innovation Summit that his office currently works to guide agencies in adopting the bimodal management of IT, according to the report.
He said his team is in the process of reviewing “what governance should take place and the skill sets that are required” both in the IT organization and in the agency, Fedscoop reports.
